This book doesn’t provide you with a novel blueprint for making friends. They will NOT be weirded out, they will most likely be happy that they’ve made a new friend. Follow up with people if you want to keep hanging out with them. Bertsche basically repeats the same advice that I’ve heard over and over. Many people will not follow up with you, even if they want to hang out. Following up 1-2 times is to be expected, you won’t come off as creepy. Join an activity, or club, or sport, or something that you like, and go alone. It forces you to talk to new people.

This book encouraged me to see my friends more, because I've been lazy about getting together with them for a long time. I loved Bertsche's take on making friends after college. Having just graduated last May, I realized how right she was when she said that it's a lot harder to make new friends once you're out of school. Of course, I still live in my hometown and have my bffs around me, but eventually I know I'll be living in a new city with no close friends nearby. Bertsche is a hilarious author. She's a confident woman, yet she has no problems writing about how.

When Rachel Bertsche first moves to Chicago, she’s thrilled to finally share a zip code, let alone an apartment, with her boyfriend. But shortly after getting married, Bertsche realizes that her new life is missing one thing: friends. Sure, she has plenty of BFFs—in New York and San Francisco and Boston and Washington, D.C. Still, in her adopted hometown, there’s no one to call at the last minute for girl talk over brunch or a reality-TV marathon over a bottle of wine. Taking matters into her own hands, Bertsche develops a plan: She’ll go on fifty-two friend-dates, one per week for a year, in hopes of meeting her new Best Friend Forever.In her thought-provoking, uproarious memoir, Bertsche blends the story of her girl-dates (whom she meets everywhere from improv class to friend rental websites) with the latest social research to examine how difficult—and hilariously awkward—it is to make new friends as an adult. In a time when women will happily announce they need a man but are embarrassed to admit they need a BFF, Bertsche uncovers the reality that no matter how great your love life is, you’ve gotta have friends.

I really enjoyed this book. I'm glad I didn't read the negative reviews before I bought it, because I might have decided not to. As some people have noted, some of the transitions and insertions of research findings seemed abrupt or awkward, but I really liked it. I am also 27 and living in a giant metropolis I didn't grow up in and have been struggling to make social connections, which was what drew me to this book to begin with, and I found a lot of this really easy to relate to. There are people talking about it being a "rich girl whining" but honestly, that wasn't something I noticed at all (and as someone who grew up with no money at all, I tend to be hypersensitive to these things). Maybe the author grew up with money and doing things I didn't get the chance to do (like summer camp) but I think we all have some kind of childhood experience that threw us into close proximity with other people our age that we became friends with out of convenience, and I don't think it has to be a summer camp experience to be able to relate to the idea. From getting over the "playing hard to get" with potential friends to the "friend crushes" on potential friends, I found myself thinking "oh, wow, that's a thing other people do too!" numerous times throughout the book.

I liked the pacing and I liked the progression of the author as a person. I like the way the book reads, and I'm glad I gave it a chance.

I am enjoying reading this book! The author is funny and I can relate to much of what she describes about her interactions, worries about whether or not to 'hug' a potential friend, and how difficult it is to make friends when you're not in school, etc. I am certainly in no way similar to the author financially; other reviewers seem to think this made it a tough read but I honestly didn't think her monetary status was over-emphasized. Yes, many of her friend dates involved going out to eat or other pricey activities, but the main focus was on the friendship-building potential. I found myself either laughing or nodding in agreement at many parts, and I really found the research on friendship that she intermixed was really interesting. At times, it was hard to keep track of who was who and sometimes felt tedious to read about so many different people in one book, so it was helpful to take breaks from reading this book (which I tend to do anyway because I always have so many books going at once, lol!). The writing itself also could use work; there were times when the same idea was repeated in different words; basically, it seemed like the book needed a little more editing. But, since I related so well to the experience of needing friends and being unsure how to make them, I enjoyed the book.

I liked this book a lot. It follows the author, Rachel Bertsche, when she first moves to Chicago, and attempts to go on fifty-two friend dates (once per week for an entire year) to meet her new BFF. Rachel has long-standing BFFs in other cities, but she knows the importance of making local friends too, and this book chronicles her journey in trying to achieve this goal. Along the way, Rachel shares some important lessons with the audience, like how persistent one has to be in order to make new friends as an adult. As someone who's also very conscious about the struggle of making friends in adulthood, this book really resonated with me. I thought it was a nice, easy read and I found myself nodding along and even saying "YES!" aloud multiple times as Rachel discusses the hardships (as well as fulfillment) she experiences in her quest for her BFF.

I was intrigued by the topic of this book so decided to purchase it. I then read some rather negative reviews and thought I might have made a mistake. But I was determined to read it and form my own opinion. I agree that there was some redundancy and there were times when I thought I wouldn't finish the book. But the author is on a mission. One that is of utmost importance to her , her happiness and well being. She set a lofty goal and saw it through- pretty impressive, I think. I found it interesting that she encountered so many others seeking the same thing- friendship- and their acknowledgement that it is not easy. The support she receives from her husband is phenomenal. I think it's worth reading- I believe everyone can relate to parts, if not all of this book.

I thought it was going to be a comedic novel. Instead it was more of a diary/ self help book. There were some good points and several ideas for finding girlfriends, however they were geared toward opportunities found mostly in major cities such as Chicago where the author lived. Not my favorite book, but it had its merits, especially introspective self auditing tips.
